1411 Registration of Pharmacy Benefits Managers


The Commissioner of the Delaware Department of Insurance is extending until June 1, 2020, the comment period for proposed new Regulation 1411 Registration of Pharmacy Benefits Managers. Notice of the proposed new regulation was published in the April 1, 2020 Register of Regulations at 23 DE Reg. 834 (04/01/2020).

As described in the proposal, proposed new Regulation 1411 implements 18 Del.C. §3353A, which requires all pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) to register with the Insurance Commissioner before providing PBM services in Delaware to a “purchaser,” and to annually register thereafter if the PBM wishes to continue to provide those services. A “purchaser” is an insurance company, health service corporation, health maintenance organization, managed care organization, and any other entity that: (1) provides prescription drug coverage or benefits in Delaware, and (2) enters into agreement with a pharmacy benefits manager for the provision of pharmacy benefits management services.
